Reset the X-Plane 11 Preferences

Recommended Posts

  • Administrator
In some cases it is a good idea to reset the preferences (for example after a big update) or if there are unclear problems:
Close X-Plane 11 at first.
Goto the X-Plane 11 Root folder, and find ...Output/preferences.
(For STEAM users see here how to find the X-Plane 11 main folder: http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/83728-faq-x-plane-10-steam-version/ )

In this (preferences) folder you find some files, beginning with X-Plane and ending with .prf

Move this files out of the folder and save them to another location (so you can restore it, if something went wrong).

In some cases it is a good idea, at first only to delete the file X-Plane.prf (make a backup of it).
Sometimes if there is a server / update problem, it is a good idea to delete the "server_list_...txt" too.
You also can delete the whole preferences folder (make a backup befor). 
Than start x-plane 11. It will create new preferences.
An now you are able to configure your X-Plane 11 with new settings incl. the Joystick Settings...
Please do it carefully and step by step: It depends on your hardware (grafic card, video RAM, System RAM...).
So configure the rendering option/Graphics not with too hight values if you (for example) use a low grafic card.... (like Intel HD Grafic or mobility cards....).
